[12/07/19]   Hello spot fans, wanted to share some exciting news (awards) our student athletes are are receiving on Monday December 9. Here is the letter sent by the Navajo times news paper. It includes all the recipients for football, volleyball, soccer & cross country.

Good afternoon,

After vetting through all the nominations, the Navajo Times sports department is proud to announce the following individuals as our all-stars.
The full listing will be available in our print edition on Thursday, December 5.
We will recognize these individuals at our awards ceremony, which is scheduled for Monday, December 9 at the Phil Thomas Performing Arts Center at Shiprock High School.
As always we will open the doors at 9 a.m. and at 9:45 a.m. we will have a photo shoot for every sport.
It has come to my attention that we only have the facility for 4.5 hours so we need to get through these photo shoots as soon as we can. The performing arts center has a school play scheduled later that evening so please inform your athletes to be there on time.
Here is a tentative schedule for the photo shoots: boys cross-country at 9:45 a.m., volleyball at 10:10 a.m., football at 10:40 a.m., girls cross-country 11:20 a.m. and soccer 11:40 p.m.
If you have questions please reach me via email or my contact numbers.
I will announce our COY and POY via email before this week’s issue comes out on Thursday.

NACA receives national recognition, named 'School of Opportunity' The Native American Community Academy was named a School of Opportunity by the National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado Boulder.

[03/19/19]   Message from Dr. Shawn Secatero, SENAI Director

Greetings SENAI Family:

We would like to congratulate all of the teams for a great season and particularly those who made it to the State tournament. We are very proud of all of our SENAI teams as we look forward to another great year of basketball.

The 9th Annual SENAI tournament is scheduled for December 26-28, 2019 here in Albuquerque. We are currently making reservations at UNM Johnson Center and we are also seeking a local high school gym in our area to accommodate our tournament if we have an overflow of teams who are interested in participating. Our SENAI Academy was very successful with 15 students in attendance and also our educational workshops were highly rated by students as we accommodated over 420 participants.

Also, we are honored to announce our Darryl Apachito Memorial Scholarship which was awarded to Taejonon Denetclaw (Navajo) , a senior who attends Native American Community Academy and Trista Apache (Canoncito Navajo/Jicarilla Apache), a senior who attends Tohajiilee High School and was awarded the Sandy Chavez Memorial Scholarship. Both seniors received a plaque, computer laptop, and printer for their outstanding essays and SENAI application packets. We will continue to offer these 2 scholarships in the future for SENAI graduating seniors.

The winners of the SENAI Poster contest are 1st place: Anna Serrano, (Navajo) a senior at Native American Community Academy; 2nd place, Jordan Buckman, (Canoncito Navajo) a senior at Sue Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, and third place, Malachi Buckman, (Canoncito Navajo) a freshman at Sue Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, NM. Honorable mention was awarded to Kyle James, (Navajo) a 7th grader from Gallup Middle School. All poster contest recipients received a trophy and rosette for their outstanding efforts. We had multiple winners from the elementary school category and our winners were from Cochiti and Kewa Schools. We would like to thank all of our participants for their artistic talents and creativity.

This year, we will have a business competition for all SENAI schools to compete for the sponsorship of the SENAI concession stand. Our SENAI concession stands have generated a highly profitable $4,000 to $8,000 for student organizations. More details to follow.

The following schools have confirmed their participation in this years upcoming SENAI tournament and education fair: Tse Yi G*i,(HS) Tohajiilee, (HS, MS) Dulce (B HS) , Newcomb (HS), Kewa (MS, ELEM) Cochiti, (MS ELEM), St. Bonaventure (MS, ELEM).
